Here is a little secret about me. I used to be a scrapbooker, a big one. I have books and books filled with lovely memories set on pretty paper with stickers and stories surrounding them.
After having my daughter, I found less and less time to scrapbook, but still have a lot of supplies. I love scrapbook paper. It is pretty. It is thick and it is wonderful to craft with.
Cleaning out our craft room this weekend, I stumbled across a ton of paper stowed away in the closet. We wanted to take advantage of our find and use it to make a cute Thanksgiving craft. I had a ton of scraps to use, so I selected whatever random pieces that I had to work with.
My daughter and I both cut strips of the paper to form our turkey’s feathers.
My daughter told me that I was making a mama turkey and she was making a baby turkey. She cut her scraps into tiny strips.
For the body, I cut out a bowling pin looking shape and my daughter cut out two circles, one larger than the other.
We glued our scrap pieces flared out around our body with the printed side of the scraps facing down. When we were satisfied with the amount of scrap feathers on our turkeys, we flipped them over and added googly eyes and an orange triangle for a beak.
My daughter insisted that the mama and baby turkey had to be glued together. It made perfect sense to me. How cute is my sweet little baby? This is a great craft for Thanksgiving and a wonderful way to practice cutting skills.
